Used for years to bring order to stages everywhere, gaffer tape has become the roadie’s secret weapon in the war against cable clutter. Better than duct tape, its easy-on, easier-off adhesive and leaves no sticky, gummy residue on gear, stands, or cables.
Gaffer Tape vs. Duct Tape
Duct tape is a cloth tape; however, its construction uses polyethylene resin on one side and rubber-based adhesive on the other. Duct tape is known around the world as a fix-all for its strength, which is a direct result of its cloth design on the back. The downside of that strength is for less permanent applications, duct tape can be overkill and leave behind excessive adhesive residue.
Gaffer tape, on the other hand, is a cotton cloth tape that is more responsive to pressure when it’s applied and doesn’t leave behind residue. That being said, you wouldn’t use gaffer tape for problems that need a permanent, industrial-strength solution.
